The news item (Aug. 22), "AT&T Will Cut 24,000 Jobs to Reduce Costs," should have read: "AT&T Will Cut 24,000 Jobs to Increase Profits." How much profit is enough? How much unemployment is too much?
This is not an isolated example of corporate greed and its rush to maximize profits without even considering the human costs and the social costs to communities across the United States. We witness the massive layoffs of auto workers, steel workers, miners, rubber workers, and now communications workers. Who is next?
